We wanted to send an update, some pictures and another thank you again to Ragom for our best dog in the world, Panda.
His birthday is today - 3 years old! We think Panda is perfect! He is friendly, happy, cuddly, and we think, a Golden at heart. He weighs 86 pounds and is tall with very long legs - we often get asked if he is part Great Dane. We say, Great, yes. Dane, maybe. Someday we will have him tested but for now we love him for his one-of-a-kind self.
Panda will retrieve his tennis ball for hours and hours, loves fetching his frisbee from the lake, is the very best cuddler at night or when the kids are home sick and is my energetic running partner. He is also the best alarm clock for our elementary and middle-school aged kids. Even when he plops up right on their beds and sits on them early in the morning, they can't help but laugh and smile at him.
His foster mom made the right prediction when we adopted him - we do spoil him rotten! He is too irresistibly sweet and lovable.
Thanks to Ragom for rescuing Panda so we could love him to pieces! And happy birthday to Panda's littermates!
Anne, Stephan, Evelyn, Noel & Panda
